Today's Quote

Se o que separa os homens da injustiça fosse somente o castigo e não a Natureza, os maus não sentiriam preocupação alguma, tão logo desaparecesse o temor dos suplícios.(...)Se os maus vacilam em invocar estes princípios, com que amor deverão cultivá-los os bons? Se o castigo, se o temor aos suplícios, e não a própria essência desonrosa dos actos, nos levam a considerar uma vida dedicada à injustiça e ao crime, então nada é injusto, e os maus seriam mais adequadamente chamados imprudentes. Se o que nos leva a ser honrados não é a própria honradez, mas sim a utilidade e o interesse, então não somos bons, somos espertos."
Author: Cicero
